Daily Rant & Rave: Don’t drag your dog out in hot weather

RAVE To homeowners along the STP (Seattle-to-Portland) bike-ride route who turned on their sprinklers or hoses and pointed them toward the road to provide refreshing mini-showers that made the ride in near record heat a much more pleasant experience.

RANT To all the dog owners who insist on taking their poor puppy dogs to crowded farmers markets and hot-day events like the Ballard SeafoodFest. This is irresponsible dog ownership and no, your dog is not having a good time.
